My sons are 11 and 9 at the moment and there are probably over a million and a half Legos spread around our house, so I can’t believe I haven’t made a Lego cake until this week! A friend of a friend asked me to do a Lego birthday cake for her son’s birthday and I gladly obliged!
This cake was SO FUN! I started with a 10″- round double-chocolate cake with chocolate mousse filling and covered it with vanilla-bean buttercream in lemon yellow. The large Lego figure, larger Lego bricks, and the round he’s sitting on are fondant, as is the name plate on the front. I also covered a small loaf-sized cake with blue fondant and added fondant “studs” on the top (that’s the technical Lego-geek term for the little bumps on a Lego bricks that holds them together–who knew?!). The smaller Lego bricks are candy. I wanted to add some height, so I put the fondant stars and “9” on wires. The customer brought me a bunch of her son’s favorite mini figures to go around the cake (my boys thought they were the “coolest ever” mini figs).
Hope you had a great birthday, Carter! I really enjoyed making your cake!!
